Songs of ResilienceQueer Songbook Orchestra
Casting a contemporary queer eye on a century’s worth of popular song, the Queer Songbook Orchestra explore the LGBTQ backstories and personal narratives that richly populate music of the past several generations. Building a living archive of songs by queer songwriters and performers, the ensemble is drawing attention to the stories and contributions of artists who worked and lived in the shadows of intolerance.
Songs of Resilience has toured the country, playing the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, the High Performance Rodeo, the National Arts Centre, and Buddies in Bad Times. Join us for this ONE NIGHT ONLY performance, part of Intrepid Theatre’s OUTstages.
Formed in 2014, the Queer Songbook Orchestra is an 11-piece chamber pop collective of queer and allied musicians from Toronto and Montreal that is dedicated to exploring the queer narratives in popular music.
